phos·pha·ti·dyl·in·o·si·tol (PtdIns),

A phosphatidic acid combined with inositol found in biomembranes and a precursor to certain cellular signals. Sometimes referred to as inositide.
Synonym(s): phosphoinositide


/phos·pho·ino·si·tide/ (-in-o´sĭ-tīd) any of a number of phosphorylated inositol-containing compounds that play roles in cell activation and calcium mobilization in response to hormones.
